Prayer for Ash Wednesday
Inspire us God of Mercy and Compassion
to undertake a heart pilgrimage in this Lenten season:
to nurture our hearts in the beauty of the natural world
to protect our hearts with the love of family and friends
to expand our hearts in generosity toward to those in need
and to challenge our hearts through actions for justice
May our hearts be open to the ongoing call to be a gospel of love in our world.
Amen.
